Cambs Level Crossing Misses

Nearly 100 drivers were involved in a near-miss with a train at level crossings in Cambridgeshire in 2010.

According to Network Rail, 98 incidents of misuse were recorded at level crossings in Cambridgeshire last year.

One of them, which happened in the village of Everton near Gamlingay, is shown in the video below.

In total, there were 3,446 incidents across the country in 2010.

Robin Gisby, Network Rail operations director, said: "Too many motorists continue to break the law by jumping the lights or swerving around barriers at level crossings.

Hundreds of pedestrians are also risking their lives just trying to save a few seconds.

It's just not worth it.

Whilst deaths and injuries are thankfully few, the actions of an impatient or ignorant minority cause great cost, delay and disruption to rail and road users across the south."
